What is a good http/ftp proxy server?

What do you recommend?   I need a good, easy to setup http/https/ftp proxy server for a linux box running ubuntu 8.04 (hardy) using kernel 2.6.24-21-386.  All my pcs are ethernet connected in a p2p configuration using ip 10.10.0.xxx.   Because.......

I have another win xp pro, sp3 box that's infected with malware.  I want to setup up a proxy on the linux machine so I can run Spyware Doctor's "smart update" to get the most recent software and  definitions. I can't do that on the xp box because I do not have internet connectivity.  Spyware doctor Smart Update has a small panel that allows me to enter proxy server: ip, port, uid and passward, I assume this is to another machine to get internet access.

Zone Alarm is blocking hasplms.exe and msfeedssync.exe.  I'm searching for those programs now and will  remove or delete when and if locate them.

Any thoughts on a good, quick, simple, easy to implement proxy for linux?

ZL identified these Trojans as the culprits:

Win32.Adware.Dm.kb
Win32.Application.Binder.B
Win32.Generic.Malware.p2p
Win32.Trojan.Crypt.ASPM.Gen
Win32.Trojan.PSW.LdPinch.BSG

Thanks much!
